This week, please pray...
Lord Jesus, like your first disciples we are full of questions and uncertainties and don’t always understand what you are teaching us.
Help us to listen to you and always to seek better, more compassionate, fairer and more just ways of living and working with others.
Lord Jesus, you taught us that, in you, we find forgiveness, and wholeness of body, mind and spirit.
Help us to share the good news of your healing and restoring power with those who need you most.
Lord Jesus, you taught us that your truth makes us free and lays our fears to rest.
Help us to do all we can to promote understanding and mutual respect, and to confront prejudice, extremism and intolerance wherever we encounter them.
Lord Jesus, we want to grow in faith and love and service, and to become more like you in every way.
Help us to play our part in proclaiming that you are alive; and make us fruitful so that we might love and serve all those around us.
